Mu Yi stared at Ning Wuque somberly.
“Is that really why you want to kill me?” Mu Yi asked with some difficulty.
“Of course, I don’t need to cheat a dying man.” Ning Wuque said.
“You’re also a member of this mysterious organization?” Mu Yi asked.
“It seems that she told you a lot, but it doesn’t matter. After all, you’re a dead man. Hand over the key to the Yellow River’s ancient road and your part of the Seven Methods of the Yin and the Fu. I promise to give you a quick death.”
“Tell me about him. I can give you the key to the Yellow River’s ancient road, the two parts of the Seven Methods of the Yin and the Fu and even the secret methods I practice. Don’t you want them?” Mu Yi said, trying to stand up straight.
He was obviously trying to bait Ning Wuque. Sure enough after hearing Mu Yi’s words the man was really excited. Mu Yi was young but was not inferior to him. Ning Wuque could not resist this temptation.
“That’s not difficult. Hand the staff over first.” Ning Wuque said eagerly.
“Do you think I’m a fool?” Mu Yi sneered and said.
“In this world, there are no more than three people who know about your father. If you miss the opportunity today, you may never know anything.” Ning Wuque blurted out.
“Are you going to let me go? ” Mu Yi said, looking at Ning Wuque sarcastically.
Ning Wuque was stunned by the question. He obviously had the intention to kill Mu Yi. Mu Yi had made such rapid progress. He had already decided to cut the grass and eliminate the roots, leaving no future troubles. At the speed of Mu Yi’s progress, maybe he would be killed when they met next. He couldn’t let Mu Yi go, no matter what.
“I can spare her and your subordinates.” Ning Wuque said.
“I won’t care for them if I die.” Mu Yi said, shaking his head.
He didn’t believe Ning Wuque because he knew without his protection, the forces under the Envoy of the Vermilion Bird’s Flag would be wiped out by others. Yun Mengxuan definitely wouldn’t survive.
“So you don’t want to know about him?” Ning Wuque looked at Mu Yi and said.
“Thank you for telling me what you already have. I now know he looks very similar to me. I will find the rest myself. I will uproot your organization eventually as well.” Mu Yi said confidently.
“You’d better just go and talk to the lord of Hell later.” Ning Wuque said.
He stopped waiting and attacked again. The peach wood sword swept down like light, intending to split Mu Yi. Mu Yi smiled. A ray of green light appeared in front of Mu Yi and collided with the peach sword. The Bamboo Tree of Life fell into Mu Yi’s hands while the sword was knocked away. The Bamboo Tree of Life sent out a green light that covered Mu Yi and helped his aura quickly recover.
It only took a few seconds for it to be fully restored since all the accumulated vitality of the Bamboo Tree of Life was poured into his body. Also since Mu Yi cultivated Vajra glaze body, his body was several times stronger than people of the same realm. His injury had been far less serious than Ning Wuque imagined. It couldn’t make Mu Yi lose his fighting power.
When the cruise ship had been attacked, Mu Yi had already used the Xin lamp to contact Nian Nuer. The distance between them had been short enough for her to faintly detect his thoughts. However, Nian Nuer and the Bamboo Tree of Life had yet to arrive so Mu Yi had to delay the fight.
Ning Wuque reached out his hand and the peach wood sword flew back to him. He looked at Mu Yi with killing intent. He had been fooled by Mu Yi because he had been greedy. Now he had learned a hard lesson and missed a good chance.
“It’s a pity that you didn’t take such a good chance.” Mu Yi said.
He was clearly taunting Ning Wuque. The green light on his body had dissipated and the wound on his chest was no longer bleeding. His spirit had already recovered to the peak.
“Even if you’re not hurt, I can still kill you.” Ning Wuque said.
He held the peach wood sword and rushed at Mu Yi, disrupting the water of the lake. Mu Yi exerted his Life Theurgy and a circle of light appeared behind his head. He took the Bamboo Tree of Life and threw it like a spear at the face of Ning Wuque. The peach wood sword and the Bamboo Tree of Life collided in midair. The lake water rolled and bubbled as if it was boiling.
Their figures were soon obscured by the lake water. Yun Mengxuan could only barely see through the water curtain. The two figures seemed to be changing directions. She could also hear the sound of thunder. Unfortunately, she had no ability to intervene in such a battle. She could only pray for Mu Yi constantly in her heart, pushing waves of the Power of Faith into Mu Yi’s mind through the Xin lamp.
Ning Wuque got more and more anxious as the fight progressed. He hadn’t expected that Mu Yi would be so strong. He had ambushed him successfully but as time went on, he had fallen into an unfavorable situation. If things went on like this, he would be the one who lost in the end.
When they had first met, Mu Yi had been a nobody who could be killed at will. He had somehow become a strong expert who could be compared with him in such a short time. If the news was spread, he would definitely be ridiculed. Ning Wuque knew that there was no possibility of reconciliation between himself and Mu Yi now.
He would never be able to sleep or eat peacefully if he had an enemy whose future was limitless. He could only get rid of him at any cost before he got any stronger. After Ning Wuque made up his mind with a cruel look in his eyes, he used a secret method. His eyes turned red and a layer of blood red light appeared on his body. His aura soared and became ferocious.
“Die.” Ning Wuque said.
Even the peach wood sword, he wielded, was dyed with a layer of red light. Mu Yi felt wary and the circle of light behind his head brightened. He summoned the Xin lamp and used the fire control technique. Blue flames hung around him like fire dragons. The lamp oil accumulated in the Xin lamp was quickly consumed and Mu Yi’s face flushed.
His injury caused by the Envoy of the White Tiger’s Flag had not completely recovered and was aggravated by his actions. Mu Yi obviously could not care about it right now. After using a secret method, Ning Wuque had reached the perfect level in strength. However, the consequences of such a secret method must be great and the power gained by the method couldn’t last long.
In this case, it was stupid to choose to fight head-on. Mu Yi felt the change in Ning Wuque and started to retreat. As long as he could survive until the additional power was gone, Ning Wuque could only be killed by him. Ning Wuque was an experienced fighter. How could he have not thought about that as well? He also increased his strength and speed. When Mu Yi retreated, the peach wood sword in his hand had already flown towards Mu Yi.
People watching could only see a line of blood before Mu Yi’s body was pushed back. The line of blood flashed and attacked again. Mu Yi controlled the fire dragon to resist, but the fire dragon was split by the line of blood. He parried the attack with the Bamboo Tree of Life in front of his chest to avoid it being ripped open but still fell.
